For my girls who have been asking about different ways to utilize the left over pulp from our juicing escapades, I found a fewÂ recipesÂ we could try that will help with the guilt of throwing all that good stuff away:
Whole Wheat Fruit/Veggie Pulp Bread
1 1/2 cups zucchini or 1 1/2 cups carrots, grate
1/2 cup oil or 1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup honey or 1/2 cup brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 cup nuts, chopped
1/2 cup raisins (optional)
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
Beat together oil and honey, then add eggs, vanilla and zucchini.
Sift dry ingredients and add to zucchini mixture.
Add nuts last.
Bake in a greased 9″ loaf pan at 350F for 45 to 60 minutes.

Â½Â small onion
1Â clove garlic
1Â cupÂ raw vegetables (any combination of carrots, fresh spinach, zucchini, broccoli)
2Â tablespoonsÂ olive oil, plus more for cooking the pancakes
kosher salt and black pepper
your kidsâ€™ favorite pancake mix (enough for 10 to 12 pancakes), plus whatever additional ingredients are called for in the directions
Â¼Â cup or 1 ounce gratedÂ Parmesan
sour cream, for serving
- Finely chop the onion, garlic, and vegetables.
- Heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the other vegetables, Â½ teaspoon salt, and Â¼ teaspoon pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until everything is tender, 5 to 8 minutes.
- While the vegetables are cooking, make the pancake batter according to the package directions.
- Add the cooked vegetables and the Parmesan to the batter and mix to combine.
- Cook the pancakes as you normally would (use olive oil instead of butter to help kick it up to dinner status). You can experiment with the amount of vegetables you include in each scoop of batter, depending on your kidsâ€™ tolerance levels. Top with the sour cream and serve.
